It wasn't a significant snow event, but wet flurries that fell across the Greater Toronto Area Friday slowed the morning commute in some places.
“A weak trough moved through the area bringing less than five centimetres of snow,” says Elena Lappo, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. “Not a big snow, but enough to cause slick roads across a widespread area.”
One Weather Network Twitter follower said conditions were pretty icy in Ottawa through the morning hours. “There's lot of black ice all over the capital. Many commuter accidents, especially in the East End.”
By the time all was said and done, Ottawa's airport had recorded 2 cm of snow.
The disturbance is expected to continue tracking eastward leaving a sunny and fair start to the weekend.
Earlier this week, Ontarians were dealing with snow, ice and flooding as a slow moving, moisture packed system pushed through.
